Book Review: End the Fed by Ron Paul
Paul covers a lot of information about the history of the Federal Reserve Board, his own history of how he got involved in economics and politics, and doesn't hold back on his opinions of Alan Greenspan and Ben Bernanke. One area that he covers in depth is gold, silver coins, copper pennies, and the gold standard. He discusses the recent economic crises, and gives very strong reasons why we should get rid of the Fed, philosophically, constitutionally, economically, and from a libertarian standpoint.
End the Fed is an easy read, and easy to understand. I highly recommend it.
